BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A Permanent 
Cure for Piles 



We have treated Brethren from all 
over the United States during the past 
29 years of our successful practice as 
rectal specialists, and in the Brethren 
Almanac have always carried an an- 
nouncement of our proposition, which 
is to accept no money until the patient 
is satisfied a cure has been effected. The 
Brethren Publishing House would not 
continue to publish these announcements 
if they were not positive our institution 
was a reliable one in every respect and 
that we absolutely accept no money till 
cured. Treating the number of Breth- 
ren we do every year, the Almanac pub- 
lishers would certainly receive com- 
plaints, if we did not carry out in every 
respect the promises made in our adver- 
tisement. We treat piles, fistula, and dis- 
eases of the rectum, and accept no mon- 
ey till the patient is cured. We tell upon 
examination what the cost will be. for a 
cure and the 



I 



length of time re- 
quired, but our 
examinations are 
always free and 
the patient is not 
urged to remain if 
these. conditions 
are not satisfac- 
tory. Write to-day 
for a 352-page il- 
lustrated treatise 
on diseases of the 
rectum, containing 
also hundreds of 
letters from prom- 
i n e n t people 
throughout the 
country whom we 
have cured. We 
also send the la- 
dies a 132-page 
treatise containing letters from ladies on- 
ly, and urge all those who may be afflict- 
ed to investigate fully the letters and in- 
formation contained in these free books. 
Write to any of the following Breth- 
ren and they will tell you how they 
were treated:

THE TIME TEST 



By Prominent Characters of 
National Reputation 



Ex-Governor T. T. CRITTENDEN, 
of Missouri, writing from Kansas City, 
says: "In 1886 I was afflicted with a 
very bad case of Piles which you cured 
in a short time at a reasonable cost." 

Secretary of State of Kansas, J. R. 
BURROW, writing from Smith Cen- 
ter, Kans., says: " Your treatment for 
rectal trouble has been very satisfac- 
tory. There have been no signs of a 
return. I was treated in 1888." 

U. S. Congressman from Oklahoma, 
BIRD S. M'GUIRE, writing from 
Guthrie, Okla., says: " I was afflicted 
with deep Fistula. Other physicians 
had failed and my condition was so 
critical that I feel 



PILES 

No Money 

Till Cured 



your delicate and 
skillful treatment 
saved my life." 

From the U. S. 
Department of Ag- 
riculture at Wash- 
ington, W. N. IR- 
W I N writes : 
''After a lapse of 
eighteen years 
there have been 
no symptoms of a 
return of the Fis- 
tula which I suf- 
fered from before 
you treated me." 



The Game and 
Fish Commission- 
er of Colorado, J. 
writes from Den- 
years 
from a very bad case of bleeding piles 
I was cured by you in a very short 



M. WOODARD, writes from 
ver: "After suffering seven 



time and without pain. 

Congressman JAMES O. MILLER, 
of Illinois, writing from Belleville, 111., 
says: "After undergoing three opera- 
tions for Piles and Fistula, I heard of 
Drs. Thornton & Minor. After a few 
mild treatments they cured me and 
from my experience as well as 300 
others I met there, I can say that in 
no instance do they accept any pay 
until you are satisfied of a cure."

TAKE TIME TO TEST YOUR CUBE. 

Drs. Thornton & Minor, of Kansas City 
and St. Louis, not only guarantee a cure 
in the treatment of Piles, Fistula and dis- 
eases of the rectum, but they give the 
patients sufficient time after returning 
home that they can try and test to make 
sure that they are well before paying any 
money whatsoever. Send to-day for their 
352-page treatise. Read their ad on page 3. 



THE FIRST RULE OF HAPPINESS. 

You must have a sound body. Without 
health no happiness. If you are sick, the 
first step must be to set the system right. 
The impoverished blood ,must be, nour- 
ished and its sluggish circulation quick-" 
ened. For this purpose, we know of no 
remedy which has jmet with more sue

HE WAS OLD ENOUGH 

to have known hottor. Tie frittered away valuable time in trying free medicines of 
tsttonable value in a desperate effort to gel well. He finally wondered at his own 

credulity — that lie could expect to uri something for nothing. Discouraged, but a wiser 
man. he eornmeneed the use of that old reliable herb-remedy, Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer 
and is to-day ent hnsiast ie over the resnlts. Nothing will restore falling health, noth- 
ing will so qu.ckly bring relief and strength as Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It is cheap- 
er than all other medicines when measured by results.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ELDER A. W. REESE. 



BY L. D. MOHLER. 



Bro. Reese, well known to the general 
Brotherhood of the Brethren church as a 
writer of rare ability, personally to the 
public as a skillful physician and sur- 
geon, to the church as a scholarly, court- 
eous, affable minister and elder, died at 
his home in Kansas 
City, Kans., Sept. 6, 
1905. His body was 
laid to rest by the side 
of his youngest daugh- 
ter, in the cemetery of 
the Brethren church 
near Warrensburg, 

Mo., his former home. 

Bro. Reese was born 
in Jefferson county, 
Indiana, Aug. 18, 1828. 
Concerning his an- 
cestry the following 
dates and facts are of 
interest, given, as re- 
corded by Bro. Reese: 
His grandfather, John 
Reese, born at Hesse 
Cassel, Germany, was 
a soldier of the Revo- 
lutionary War. He 
settled in Kentucky 
and was engaged in 
many of the Indian 
battles that gave to 
that country the title 
of the " dark and 
bloody ground." 

He was one of the garrison at " Bry- 
ants Station " which was attacked and 
afterwards besieged by a band of six 
hundred Indian warriors headed by Si- 
mon Girty, — and it was here he met his 
wife, a maiden who helped melt the 
lead and mould bullets for the defense 
of the fort. She was one of the ten 
women who volunteered to go outside of 
the fort for water for the suffering men. 
They had to go out of the stockade sev- 



eral hundred yards, but returned in safe- 
ty. 

He died in December, 1825, in Clark 
county, Indiana. In later life he became 
a minister of the Baptist church, and 
was known as the Dutch preacher. 




Eld. A. W. Reese. 

Bro. Reese's father, John Reese, born 
in Kentucky, served under General Jack- 
son and was a great admirer of " Old 
Hickory." In later years he was con- 
verted and became a minister of the 
Baptist church. He was a blacksmith by 
trade. His mother, Elizabeth Syming- 
ton, was of Scotch descent, belonging to 
the Scotch Presbyterian church. 

It may thus be seen that Bro. Reese 
came of a stock calculated to transmit

A RECORD OF TWENTY-NINE YEARS 

Should certainly convince all Dunkard 
people that the institution of Drs. Thornton 
& Minor, rectal specialists, Kansas City and 
St. Louis, is thoroughly well established 
and reliable in every respect. Their ad- 
vertising has been in the Almanac for a 
great many years, and hundreds of our 
people have gone to them for treatment 
with satisfactory results. Read their ad 
on page 3. 



WHITING FOB GRANDMA. 
Mrs. Theresa M. Alexander, of Kendall- 
ville, Ind., writes: "Grandma is now 
eighty-four years old and almost too old 
to hold an agency for medicines, but she 
says she cannot live without the Blood 
Vitalizer in the house. It has done wonders 
for her. She wanted me to write and tell 
you." 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



vigorous constitution and strong quali- 
ties of' character. He grew up in the 
country, was taught in the faith of the 
Baptist church, but was unable to " get 
religion " by the emotional experiences 
thought to be essential, and for a time 
was much depressed on that account. 
But" later he united with the Presby- 
terian church, with which he held a nom- 
inal connection. 

The moral training under which he 
was cultured was of the highest stand- 
ard. Being gifted intellectually he made 
the most of his early opportunities for 
securing an education. On Nov. 7, 1845, 
he entered the now famous Hanover Col- 
lege, and graduated June 18, 1849. He 
taught one term of school and entered 
the Kentucky School of Medicine at 
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 1, 1850, from which 
he graduated March 1, 1855. 

He made his way through Hanover 
a^d medical colleges largely by his own 
efforts. Early becoming a fine penman 
and expert bookkeeper, he took work in 
the office of a publisher, taught writing 
school, and by various ways of students 
determined to go through school, he^ 
made his way. 

As a student, fidelity to his work, at- 
tention to details and completeness were 
fixed rules that became part of his train- 
ing and habits for life. 

At medical college, good habits, en- 
thusiastic devotion to work, courteous 
helpfulness, and pleasing address won 
the favor of the head of the institution, 
Dr. Samuel B. Richardson, who made a 
place in his own home for him, taking 
him directly into his own medical life, 
making him assistant in important sur- 
gical operations, affording most superior 
advantages that proved of great value. 
Shortly after graduating he went West 
and began his professional career at 
Pleasant Hill, Mo., about twenty-five 
miles east of Kansas City, where he im- 
mediately acquired a large practice. 

Sept. 13, 1857, he married Mrs. Ella 
Cobb. The following year he removed 



to Saline county, Missouri, where among 
wealthy farmers and hemp growers of 
southern plantation style he enjoyed a 
very lucrative practice till the country 
was rent by the rebellion and the call to 
arms from the north and from the south. 

He enlisted as surgeon of the 31st 
Volunteers of Missouri, commanded by 
Governor Fletcher, and served through 
the war. He was with Sherman's army 
during his memorable march to the sea. 
Observing the butchery of war, he said, 
at the battle of Atlanta, after two and 
a half days of incessant work: "The 
medical station had a pile of arms and 
legs as big as a smoke house." 

Nov. 24 he was placed in charge of 
the military hospital at Warrensburg, 
Mo., where he remained till mustered 
out, July 22, 1865. He then opened an 
office in Warrensburg, and continued in 
the practice of medicine until 1892, when 
he went to Leavenworth, Kans., where 
he reentered the United States service 
as assistant surgeon of the Military 
Home. In this service he had charge 
of administering the " Keely cure " — for 
drunkenness and the opium habit — to the 
old soldiers, inmates of the home. 

His term expired in August, 1897. 
Then, in the service of the Keely Com- 
pany, he was stationed successively at 
Pittsburg, Pa.; Fargo, N. Dak.; Scranton, 
Pa.; Detroit, Mich.; Memphis, Tenn., — 
covering a period of nearly five years, — 
and then, after a short stay at Warrens- 
burg, Mo., he settled at Kansas City, in 
1902, where with a goodly competence 
he lived with his family until he died 
from Bright's disease that had been in 
progress for a number of years. His 
age was 77 years and 18 days. 

From his first marriage two children 
were born — Lizzie and Gertrude. The 
former only is now living, and is the 
wife of William Mohler, of Falls City", 
Nebr. His wife died in 1865. Oct. 22, 
1867, he married Susanna E. Baile, of 
Preble county, Ohio, who survives him, 
living with two daughters at their home

A LARGE FAMILY 

is, as a rule, never entirely free from sickness of some kind. One day it is this one, 
and another day that one who is ailing, so that it keeps the poor mother almost wor- 
ried to death. The presence of a reliable home remedy, in which she has perfect con- 
fidence, relieves her of a great deal of this worry. Mrs. C. Bassant, of 648 Burnett Ave., 
Syracuse, N. Y., says: "I am very thankful for what the Blood Vitalizer has done for 
our little girl six years old. She was sickly for a long time. No medicine did her any 
good. We thought that maybe she had worms and gave her worm medicine, but without 
results. Your Blood Vitalizer has built her up, and rid her of the worms too."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



in Kansas City, Kans., and is an active 
worker in the church. 

From his last marriage there were 
born to him seven children — six now liv- 
ing, Mrs. Sallie Eby 4 of Summerville, 
Ohio; Mrs. Minnie Burket, Topeka, Kan- 
sas; Mark Reese, Scranton, Pa.; Paul, 
Effie and Nannie — unmarried — and Susie, 
the youngest, who died at Kansas City, 
Feb. 22, 1904. 

Dr. Reese's acquaintance with the 
Brethren church began with his second 
marriage, his wife's people being mem- 
bers of the church. About this time, 
by emigration, the Mineral Creek, Wal- 
nut Creek, and Centreview churches, out 
from the city, and the nucleus of a church 
at Warrensburg were formed. 

While he was a cultured man of so- 
ciety and of the world, he was a man 
of well-defined and settled principles, of 
open heart and sterling honesty with 
himself and his convictions. 

Through his wife and her people he 
acquired an intimate knowledge of the 
doctrine and practice of the church, 
which led to his embracing the faith of 
the German Baptist Brethren. He was 
baptized in the Mineral Creek church, 
Nov. 1, 1876; was elected to the min- 
istry in the Centreview church, which 
then embraced Warrensburg, in July, 
1877; was ordained to the eldership in 
1882. 

As minister and elder he faithfully en- 
deavored to be true to his charge. He 
had the courage of his convictions, and 
as an open book his faith and principles 
could be known and read of all men. 

He preached impromptu; his style was 
scholarly, ornate, often eloquent. He 
brought into the work a trained mind, 
stored with knowledge from many 
fields, and a heart set to do his Master's 
will. He was a close observer of every- 
thing, an extensive reader of current 
literature and of books; was fond of 
history, especially ancient history, also 
of poetry. 

He had a very superior memory and 
fine descriptive powers. His mind had 



much of the poetical cast, to sweep the 
fields of knowledge at a glance, and with 
ease and nice distinction to gather the 
materials of thought, and shape them in 
forms of strength, beauty and grandeur. 

He wrote with ease, and contributed to 
literary, scientific and professional jour- 
nals; and after his connection with the 
Brethren church he wrote occasionally 
for the church papers. His articles were 
very highly appreciated for their strength 
of thought, luminous description, schol- 
arly and accurate presentation of truth. 
His pen carried conviction to the heart. 

Personally he was of sunny temper, a 
genial companion and staunch friend to 
his friends; was fond of his family and 
home life and took great pleasure in his 
children. 

He was a fine conversationalist, had a 
large fund of stories drawn from events 
in his own life. He enjoyed his friends 
and social relations, rather than to take 
interest in pursuit of personal ambitions. 

As his life drew towards the close he 
looked forward into the unknown future 
and from the standpoint of scholar, 
philosopher and Christian talked and 
meditated much upon the problems 01 s 
the soul and upon his own deep, present, 
personal interest in the change from the 
scenes of time to eternity. 

About two years before his death, 
when as physician with, knowledge of his 
own symptoms, he regarded himself very 
near the end, he called for the elders of 
the church and was anointed with oil 
in the name of the Lord. Symptoms of 
approaching dissolution subsided, and 
like Hezekiah of old, he believed that 
the Lord gave to him a goodly addition 
to his days. 

His views on the subject of anointing, 
his faith in its virtue and power, were 
expressed in an article on the subject in 
the Gospel Messenger. 

As the days of the end drew nigh, in 
much prayer and communion with God, 
with deep regrets that comparatively a 
remnant only of his time was given

DO NOT SUFFER FROM FU.ES. 

There is a positive cure for Piles, Fistula 
and all diseases of the rectum by the Thorn- 
ton & Minor System of Treatment, which 
we knew has been absolutely successful in 
the treatment of hundreds of Dunkard peo- 
ple who have been cured by Drs. Thornton 
& Minor, Kansas City and St. Louis. See 
ad on page 3. 



THE GREATEST OF STRIKES. 

We read a great deal about strikes now- 
adays and how they affect nearly all lines 
of business life, but the worst strike of 
all is when our stomach refuses to do the 
work-allotted to it. Such a strike paralyzes 
our whole system. All forms of stomach 
trouble are quickly cured by that old time- 
tried remedy, Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



actively to the service of the Lord, he 
committed himself to the mercy and love 
of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 
who was his hope. 

And thus closed the life of a strong 
man, who like his father and grandfather 
fought the battles of carnal warfare in 
early life, later to take the sword of the 



Spirit and fight the battles of the Lord 
by preaching and teaching his Word, 
and in personal life by triumphing over 
sin, the world and the flesh, — in the at-

eternal life through our Lord and Sav- 
ior Jesus Christ.

WHERE THE ANNUAL MEETINGS HAVE BEEN HELD. 



It was in the year 1708 that the Breth- 
ren began their reformatory movement 
in Germany. One morning, the exact 
date is not known, five men and three 
women went down to the river Eder, 



From the start Bro. Mack and those 
who stood with him discarded all creeds 
and settled on the New Testament as 
their rule of faith and practice. They 
agreed to study the Word of God prayer-

near the little village of Schwartzenau, 
and were baptized by trine immersion. 
The baptism took place probably just be- 
low the bridge shown in this picture. 

Soon after this the little band of be- 
lievers organized by selecting Bro. Alex- 
ander Mack for their minister. Mack 
was a man of good mental culture, thor- 
oughly read in church history, a fine Bi- 
ble student and possessed considerable 
property. He at once threw himself into 
the work of the ministry and in the 
course of a few years established a num- 
ber of churches in different parts of Eu- 
rope. 



fully and accept the divine light as fast 
as it came to them. This led to the ac- 
cepting of all the commandments en- 
joined by Christ and the apostles. Not 
one command would they knowingly dis- 
card. • 

In time bitter persecutions arose, and 
for safety the members of the church 
commenced emigrating to America. 
Those who came first settled in and 
around Germantown, Pa. Many of those 
who emigrated later settled in other parts 
of the State. Alexander Mack came in 
1729, just twenty-one years after he be- 
gan his reformatory work. In America

THE SORROW OF SICKNESS 

is more than counter-balanced by the joy of getting well. Mr. Paul Neubel, of Le Mars, 
Iowa, writes: "Permit me to send you the happy message that my wife who has doctored 
for years without avail, is now well through the use of the Blood Vitalizer. She is now 
so jolly and full of life that it does one good to see her." Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is 
not a drugstore medicine. It is supplied to the people direct by special agents appointed 
in every community. If you know of no agent in your neighborhood, write to the sole 
proprietors, Dr. Peter Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, 111.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



he found a safe and secure retreat from 
persecution, but he did not live long to 
enjoy the blessings of a free country. 
Six years after settling at Germantown 
he died a poor man, all of his wealth 
having been swept away. 

But the church, transplanted to Amer- 
ica, grew in number and many congrega- 
tions were formed, all of them adhering 
to the original claim of recognizing the 
New Testament as the one fixed rule of 
faith and practice. • Points of differences 
of course arose, and the Brethren came 
together, from time to time, to com- 
pare views and unite on that which they 
thought the Scriptures taught. Their 
only appeal in those days was to the 
written Word. By this they endeavored 
to settle every question that disturbed 
them. 

But it was not until the year 1742 that 
annual conferences were deemed advis- 
able. , The first meeting was a called 
conference, having for its purpose the 
unifying of the churches on the New 
Testament teachings and the protecting 
of the members against outside influ- 
ences. As these meetings were arranged 
for from year to year no one ever 
dreamed of creed making. The object 
was not to formulate rules of faith and 
practice, but to study the Scriptures on 
disputed points and unite on their teach- 
ings. Minutes were kept of the proceed- 
ings, and that is why we happen to have 
the Minutes of the Annual Meeting. 

Below will be found a list of these 
Annual Meetings, and the places where 
they were held, so far as facts concern- 
ing places and dates could be procured. 
This is probably the most complete list 
of the Annual Meetings yet published. 

The first meeting was held in 1742, 
probably in the Coventry church, Pa. 
From that date to 1777 we have no rec- 
ord of the meetings whatever.

TWO IMPORTANT THINGS. 

The health and financial condition of a household are closely connected. Any per- 
son possessed of a large family and who has had any experience with doctor bills will 
appreciate this fact. To him the merits of a reliable household remedy such as Dr. Pe- 
ter's Blood Vitalizer means much. Rev. F. A. Rose, Mt. Clemens, Mich., says: "I think 
Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is now almost universally recognized as the best remedy of 
the day." Do not ask in the drugstore for Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It is not to be 
had there, but is supplied to the people direct through local agents appointed by the 
sole proprietors, Dr. Peter Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, 111.

WHEN FATHER RODE 
THE GOAT. 



[When being initiated into some of the 
secret societies men are sometimes ac- 
cused of riding the dummy goat. Be that 
as it may, the performance is such as to 
make it rather rough for a new member 
now and then. Here is an instance as 
poetically portrayed by a writer in the Bal- 
timore American. — Ed.] 

The house is full of arnica, 

And mystery profound; 
We do not dare to run about 

Or make the slightest sound; 
We leave the big piano shut 

And do not strike a note; 
The doctor's been here seven times 

Since father rode the goat. 

He joined the lodge a week ago — 

Got in at 4 A. M., 
And sixteen brethren brought him home. 

Though he says he brought them. 
His wrist was sprained and one big rip 

Had rent his Sunday coat — 
There must have been a lively time 

When father rode the goat. 

He's resting on the couch to-day 

And practicing his signs — 
The hailing signal, working grip, 

And other monkeyshines; 
He mutters passwords 'neath his breath, 
. And other things he'll quote — 
They surely had an evening's work 

When father rode the goat. 

He has a gorgeous uniform, 

All gold and red and blue, 
A hat with plumes and yellow braid, 

And golden badges, too. 
But, somehow, when we mention it, 

He wears a look so grim 
We wonder if he rode the goat 

Or if the goat rode him.

There is no use in dealing with high-sounding names. The doctor may tell you that 
you are the victim of an attack of Cholelithia Icterus, when the plain, unvarnished truth 
is that you are suffering from an inactive liver and that the bile is, as a result, enter- 
ing your blood and poisoning your system. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is the standard 
remedy for all forms of liver trouble. It ceased to be an experiment over one hundred

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR 1906. 



The Annual Meeting for 1906 is to 
be held at Springfield, 111., commencing 
on Tuesday morning, June 5. The Stand- 
ing Committee will meet on Thursday 
morning, May 31. Each State district 
is entitled to one elder on this commit- 
tee. Districts having thirty-five hundred 
or more members may send two elders. 

In the open conference each congre- 
gation, however small, may be represent- 
ed by one delegate, either from the laity 
or official body. Congregations having 
two hundred members have the privilege 
of sending two delegates. Sisters may 
serve as delegates, but not on the Stand- 
ing Committee. Only regularly ordained 
elders or bishops can serve on this com- 
mittee. It requires a two-thirds vote of 
the delegates and Standing Committee to 
carry a question in the open conference. 

The week before the conference there 
will be a Bible Normal to be conducted 
by brethren fully qualified for that line 
of work. Sunday, June 3, there will be 
some grand meetings in the tabernacle, 
and the sermons are to be delivered by 
some of the best speakers to be had. 

On Monday forenoon the Annual Sun- 
day-school meeting will take place. The 
afternoon, in part at least, will be de- 
voted to a large and enthusiastic mis- 
sionary meeting, to be followed by the 
Annual Meeting collection. It will be 
the aim of the mission workers to make 
this the largest collection that we have 
yet had. In this collection every con- 
gregation should be represented. 

Springfield, where the meeting is to 
be held, is the capital of the State of 
Illinois, has a population of about 35,000, 
is centrally located and enjoys excellent 
railroad facilities. The conference is to 
be held on the State Fair Grounds, where 
there are ample buildings for every pur- 
pose. So far as the meeting is concerned, 
it will make little difference whether it 
rains or not. Nearly one hundred thou- 
sand people can find shelter and accom- 
modations. The grounds are to one side 



of the city, but connected by an excellent 
trolley line. Then there is a special 
track that the different railroads can use 
in running car loads of people direct to 
the place of meeting. Ample provision 
will be made for feeding and lodging all 
who may have a desire to attend this 
meeting. In due time special announce- 
ments concerning railroad arrangements, 
etc., will appear in the Messenger. 

The Committee of Arrangements con- 
sists of: Jacob Hershberger, foreman, 
Salem, 111., I. D. Heckman, secretary, 
Oakley, 111., J. C. Wine, treasurer, Cer- 
rogordo, 111., S. S. Brubaker, Virden, 111., 
J. W. Switzer, Roanoke, 111. There is 
also a ministerial committee, whose duty 
it is to arrange for all the services to 
be held on the grounds. That committee 
is as follows: J. H. Baker, foreman and 
platform spokesman, Astoria, 111., J. W. 
Lear, secretary, Cerrogordo, 111., M. 
Flory, Girard, 111. This committee has 
in view a revival meeting immediately 
after the conference. 

HOW TO KEEP THE BABY 
QUIET. 



After receiving its meals the baby 
sometimes becomes fretful. It can often 
be quieted with a few raisins. In a piece 
of soft muslin secure two or three fat, 
juicy raisins and let the little one have 
them in his mouth. He will suck and 
chew the sack and soon become quiet. 
The sweet juice will do him good, while 
the chewing will make his gums feel 
easy. Of course the little sack of rai- 
sins should be so formed that the baby 
cannot swallpw it. The chewing of rai- 
sins in this manner may be better for the 
child's gums than biting on a rubber. 

" Oh, Johnny," said the Sunday-school 
teacher, " you mustn't take money from 
the plate. Why did you try to do such a 
thing?" 

" I thought you said it was fer the 
heathen, and maw says I'm one,"

IMITATIONS, BUT NO SUBSTITUTE. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer may have its imitations, but it has no substitute. Mr. 
W. F. Clawson, Anderson, Ind., writes: "We have tried using other and cheaper (?) 
medicines than the Blood Vitalizer, but find that they do not give the satisfaction, neither 
can they do the work that the Blood Vitalizer does. Therefore please send us another 
box of the Blood Vitalizer." Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is distinctly different from other 
medicines. It is put up, not as an article of commercial traffic, but for the cure of sick 
people and is supplied at a reasonable cost. It is the least expensive of all medicine? 
when measured by results,

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 



BLACK RIVER CONGREGATION OF NORTHEASTERN OHIO. 



BY M. CLYDE HORST. 



The history of the Black River con- 
gregation dates back to about the year 
1846, when brethren Ephraim and Jo- 
seph Swinehart with their families lo- 
cated near Black River, Chatham town- 
ship, Medina county, Ohio. Other im- 
migrant members were 
brethren John White 
in 1849 and Joseph Rit- 
tenhouse in 1850, who, 
with their wives, were 
included in the first 
membership. The ter- 
ritory at first was a 
part of the Mohican 
congregation, in Wayne 
county, of which Bro. 
Jacob Garver was then 
presiding elder. 

Sept. 30, 1855, the 
congregation was or- 
ganized at the home of 
Bro. Joseph Ritten- 
house, at which time he 
was elected to the min- 
istry, and brethren Ephraim Brovant and 
John White were chosen deacons. Eld- 
ers Elias Dickey, of Ashland, Ohio, and 
Joseph Showalter, of Stark county, Ohio, 
conducted the organization. 

Among the charter members we find 
brethren Joseph Rittenhouse, John 
White, George Heestand, John Robinson, 
Jacob Brovant, Ephraim Brovant, Gideon 
Bollinger, Samuel Garver, John Wertz, 
Ephraim Swinehart, their wives, and Sis- 
'ter Mary Pittenger. 

On the evening of this day the first 
love feast was held in the same house, 
which is still standing. A few years 
later Bro. Samuel Garver was elected to 
the ministry. About the year 1867 Bro. 
Joseph Rittenhouse was ordained to the 
eldership and given charge of the con- 
gregation. In 1870 Bro. Gideon Bolling- 
er was elected to the ministry and served 



the congregation in that capacity until 
1880, when he emigrated to Missouri. 
May 3, 1873, brethren John Pittenger (a 
deacon) and Tobias Hoover were elected 
to the ministry, and advanced to the sec- 
ond degree Aug. 1, 1874. 




Black River Church, Ohio. 

About this time Bro. Samuel Garver 
was ordained to the eldership and pre- 
sided over the congregation until Feb- 
ruary, 1904, when Bro. Tobias Hoover, 
who was ordained to the eldership in 
1893, was chosen presiding elder. Aug. 
2, 1879, Bro. Henry Homan was chosen 
deacon. 

The membership at this time consist- 
ed of 132 persons, but the " division " of 
1881-'82 reduced it to about 93 members 
loyal to the Brotherhood. From this 
time until 1896 the number decreased to' 
about fifty members, but the spirit of ac- 
tivity and zeal was still strongly mani- 
fest in spite of discouraging reverses. 

April 7, 1883, brethren Wm. Shoe- 
maker and Tobias Browand were elected 
deacons, the latter, however, not accept- 
ing the charge until May 1, 1886. Nov. 
7, 1887, Bro, Charles M. Woods was

THE DRY PHILOSOPHY 

that every ailment exists as the result of 
an infraction of Nature's law, is poor com- 
fort to the man who is sick and ailing. 
Better speak to him of the joy of getting 
well and show him the road through Dr. 
Peter's Bloqa Vitalize*, 



THE BEST ENDORSEMENT 

of a medicine is the testimony of those who 
have used it. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer 

is acknowledged to be a blood medicine 
which has few, if any equals. Send for a

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



elected to the ministry and did accept- 
able preaching for some time, but de- 
clined to serve after about eight years 
of very "commendable effort. 

Nov. 5, 1892, brethren Isaac Myers and 
George Hart were elected deacons. Bro. 
Hart was killed by an accident in 1894, 
but Bro. Myers still faithfully magnifies 
his office. 

May 1, 1897, Bro. Henry Kilmer was 
chosen deacon. From 1896 to 1905 nine- 
teen members were added by immigra- 
tion and twenty-four by baptism. 

Oct. 14, 1899, brethren Levi Dague and 
Henry Heestand were chosen deacons 
and Bro. A. B. Horst was elected to the 
ministry, and advanced to the second de- 
gree the following year. 

April 1, 1902, Bro. John Yoder (a min- 
ister in first degree) moved into the con- 
gregation and was advanced to the sec- 
ond degree in October of the same year. 

Sept. 24, 1904, brethren S. M. Friend 
and M. C. Horst were elected to the 
ministry and installed by Eld. T. S. Mo- 
herman. The first meetinghouse was 
built in 1867 in Homer township and is 
now owned by the Progressive Brethren. 
In 1868 the second meetinghouse was 
built in Chatham township, near Black 
River, which served as a place of wor- 
ship until September, 1900, when the one 
shown in the photograph was dedicated. 
Meetings are held here and at two other 
places in the congregation. 

An interesting feature which has ever 
inspired the congregation to Christian 
activity is the fact that she has been 
blessed with such elders as Jacob Garv- 
er, Joseph Rittenhouse, Samuel Garver 
and Tobias Hoover, who have always en- 
couraged every good work. 

A Sunday school was organized soon 
after 1868, with Bro. Joseph Rittenhouse 
as superintendent. This being discon- 
tinued at the church for a time, Sister 
Mary Hoover conducted one in her own 
home. 

From 1879 to 1887 the following breth- 
ren had charge of the Sunday school, 



viz.: W. F. England, Henry Homan, 
John Dague, J. B. Wine, Tobias Hoover 
and John Pittenger. 

April 10, 1887, Bro. C. M. Woods was 
elected superintendent, and reelected 
nearly every year until September, 1903, 
when Bro. S. M. Friend was chosen as 
his successor. 

May 3, 1903, a Missionary Reading 
Circle was organized, which has devel- 
oped a Christian Workers' meeting that 
aspires for recognition as a help to ev- 
ery member. 

Two India orphans are supported, one 
(Mackli) by Sunday-school class No. 5, 
and another (Chatm Jaruji) by the Sis- 
ters' Aid Society, which was organized 
June 22, 1895. The present congregation 
consists of eighty-four members of whom 
two are elders, three ministers in the 
second degree and two in the first de- 
gree, and four deacons. 

Age has ended the active labors of 
two of our ministers — Eld. Samuel Gar- 
ver and Bro. John Pittenger — and it re- 
mains with the rising church to fulfill 
the faith so nobly manifested by our 
loyal fathers. Heb. 11: 40.

BE A METHODIST. 



A North Dakota boy, the precocious 
son of a Baptist clergyman, has inher- 
ited all the traditional baptism-by-im- 
mersion principles, and by close atten- 
tion given to the ceremony, as performed 
by his parents, he is able to repeat it 
word for word. A few days ago he had 
a tub of water in the kitchen, and catch- 
ing the family cat and her two kittens, 
he proceeded to teach them one of the 
essential rites of the Baptist church. 
The kittens underwent the ordeal with- 
out protest, but the cat showed her dis- 
pleasure by scratching the boy's face. 
Throwing the offending animal down, he 
said, in disgust: "Then be a Methodist 
if you want to." — Lakota (N. D.) Herald.

AN OLD MEDICINE. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer was first pre- 
pared in the year 1780, by the great-grand- 
father of the present proprietors. It has 
been in constant use ever since, and has 
stood the test of time. 



THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS 

who were sick and in distress have found 
help in the use of Dr. Peter's Blood Vital- 
izer. Thousands of others, equally needy, 
have not yet tried it. Are you one of 
these?

IKE WALTON'S PRAYER. 



BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY. 



[From "Love Lyrics" copyrighted 1899. 
Used by special permission of the publish- 
ers, The Bobbs-Merrill Co.] 

I crave, dear Lord, 
No boundless hoard 
Of gold and gear, 

Nor jewels fine, 

Nor lands, nor kine, 



With but the tiny coverlet 
And pillow for the baby's head; 

And pray thou, may 

The door stand open and the day 
Send ever in a gentle breeze, 
With fragrance from the locust-trees, 
And drowsy moan of doves, and blur 




Nor treasure-heaps of anything. — 

Let but a little hut be mine 
Where at the hearthstone I may hear 

The cricket sing, 
Of one glad woman's eyes to make, 
And have the shine 
For my poor sake, 

Our simple home a place divine; — 
Just the wee cot — the cricket's chirr- 
Love, and the smiling face of her. 

I pray not for 
Great riches, nor 

For vast estates, and castle-halls, — 
Give me to hear the bare footfalls 
Of children o'er 
An oaken floor, 
New-rinsed with sunshine, or bespread 



Of robin-chirps, and drone of bees, 

With afterhushes of the stir 
Of intermingling sounds, and then 

The good-wife and the smile of her 
Filling the silences again — 
The cricket's call, 

And the wee cot, 
Dear Lord of all, 
Deny me not! 

I pray not that 

Men tremble at 
My power of place 
And lordly sway, — 

I only pray for simple grace 

To look my neighbor in the face 
Full honestly from day to day — 
Yield me his thorny palm to hold,

It hath the kingliest smile' on earth— 
The swart brow, diamonded with sweat, 
Hath never need of coronet.

HISTORY OF THE BRETHREN IN SOUTHERN OHIO 
FOR A CENTURY. 



BY JOHN CALVIN BRIGHT. 



Part I. 

A few families of the Brethren came 
to the Miami Valley in the last years of 
the eighteenth century. The first min- 
ister was Eld. Jacob Miller, who settled 
about four miles southwest of Dayton 
in 1800, near what is now called the 
Lower Miami churchhouse. He preached 
to. the whites and Indians, the latter 
styling him " the good man the Great 
Spirit sent from the east." He died in 
1815 near the " Holler church." 

The first church was organized in 1805, 
in early August. It was called " The 
Miami church," being the first church or- 
ganized west of the Great Miami and 
the third ' in Ohio. It possibly had 
twenty members. The last survivor of 
those present at the organization was 
Eld. Elias Caylor, who was then a babe 
about four months old in. his mother's 
arms, and who was instrumental in build- 
ing up the Arcadia church, Ind., and in 
the conversion of Eld. R. H. Miller. 

The church prospered, settlers stream- 
ed in from the east, many Brethren com- 
ing from eastern and middle Pennsyl- 
vania, from Maryland, and from the Val- 
ley of Virginia. In six years we find 
over a hundred members with at least 



eight preachers, and " a cloud " that 
threatened the life of the Miami church. 
A committee of four elders came from 
the East into whose hands everything 
was committed, promising to abide by 
their decision. Everything was happily 
adjusted and the Miami church was di- 
vided into four churches, viz., Miami, 
Bear Creek, Wolf Creek, and Stillwater, 
each church having at least two minis- 
ters and a good, active membership. 

After the war of 1812 the tide of emi- 
gration flowed with renewed vigor, the 
families of the Brethren multiplied after 
the primitive manner, the ministers were 
zealous and energetic in teaching their 
flocks and the church prospered. Fif- 
teen churches were organized before the 
year 1850, and perhaps as many meeting- 
houses built. Some of the earlier 
churches worshiped in their houses and 
barns many years before they erected 
their meetinghouses. Some of the mem- 
bers built their houses not only as homes 
for their families, but arranging for pub- 
lic worship. One of the best known is 
the Old Hay Home now owned by Bro. 
Greely Pfoutz, near Brookville, where 
the special conference of 1845 and the 
Annual Conference of 1862 were held.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



To these old-time home meetings every- 
body went and everybody was invited to 
stay for dinner. And the larger the 
purse and the heart, especially the heart, 
the oftener was the joy experienced of 
dispensing their hospitality to their 
brethren and friends. And some of the 
families kept up this home meeting at 
least once a -year for twenty-five years 
after they had a meetinghouse. Those 
earlier sanctuaries were furnished with 
seats without backs, with the exception 
of the minister's. 

The German and English were both 
used until 1879. In the earlier history 
the German was the more extensively 
used and often there were two sermons 
at the same meeting, sometimes by the 
same minister. The German began to 
decline as early as 1850 in some of the 
churches. 

The Brethren's settlements increased, 
and at the close of the century we have 
twenty-seven churches in the Miami Val- 
ley. Four more have been organized in 
the twentieth century. 

A few Sunday schools were introduced 
in the sixties, quite a number in the sev- 
enties, in all the churches in the eighties 
and nearly all took on an evergreen hue 
in the nineties. 

Annual Meetings were held in 1850, 
1862, 1875, 1884, 1886. At the 1850 meet- 
ing free use was made of the interpreter, 
Eld. F. P. Loehr, who translated the 
queries and answers into German or 
English as required, as well as the sa- 
lient points in the arguments. 

Prominent among our brethren in the 
earliest half of the century we mention 
Eld. David Bowman, Sr., who preached 
for over half a century. He was per- 
haps the second minister in the Miami 
Valley and labored mostly in the Ger- 
man. He and two brothers and a sister 
gave the Brotherhood about forty min- 
isters. Six of our Miami Dunker elders 
are of this Bowman relation. 

Among the elders whose names are 
prominent in our history in the latter 
half of the nineteenth century were Pe- 



ter Nead, who gave the Miami churches 
twenty-five years of active service and 
was quite an author for his day; moder- 
ator of our Annual Meeting for twelve 
years in -succession; James Quinter, clerk 
of Annual Meeting for thirty years; 
Samuel Garber author of Miami Valley 
Petition of 1880 and of the resolutions 
of 1881. 

Standing in the foreground of our work 
in the beginning of the new century we 
name elders Jacob Garber and John 
Smith, nearing the Jordan of translation, 
with -Eld. Jesse Stutsman ripe with years 
but yet in the arena of active work, with 
mental and physical vigor not abated. 
Eld. I. J. Rosenberger, well known to 
the Brotherhood, is our oldest elder in 
office. 

Part II. 

In the counties east of Cincinnati, not 
of the Miami Valley, but a part of South- 
ern Ohio, there were at least ten 
churches organized, seven of which sur- 
vive. The Stone Lick church, in Cler- 
mont county, is the oldest church in 
Ohio, being organized in 1795. The 
most active elder of this region before 
1850 was Robert Calvert. Four of his 
sons were ministers, Mills receiving the 
mantle from his father and laboring in 
the same field for the next twenty-five 
years. His mantle fell on W. Q. Calvert, 
his son, who also labored in the same 
churches with much acceptance for the 
next twenty-five years. Eld. Thomas 
Major and his wife, the eloquent sister 
preacher of our Brotherhood, spent their 
riper years here. Eld. James Quinter 
had the college at New Vienna in the 
early sixties. Eld. Landon West came 
out of these hills also and spent the best 
of his " life in proclaiming the Truth. 
These churches never received much ad- 
dition by immigration, lost considerable 
by emigration, suffered some innova- 
tions to come among them that were 
hurtful and hence did not prosper as 
much as desired. However, it should be 
said that some of them always practiced 
the gospel mode of feet-washing. 



29 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Part III. 

Eld. Peter Nead baptized a slave, 
Samuei Wier, in Virginia in the forties. 
He got his freedom, came to Ohio, was 
appointed to the ministry and after years 
of preaching started churches at Frank- 
fort and Circleville, Ohio. Some of 
these members also came from Virginia 
and some from the blackest part of 



South Carolina. Bro. Wier willed his 
home for a sanctuary, and others of the 
negro race took up the work. Bro. West 
" watered " the seed most assiduously. 
They represent at our district confer- 
ence. Brethren and sisters, let us be 
thankful for the past, active in the pres- 
ent and hopeful for the future.

gle, 290,713,984 

From these approximate statistics the 
kind reader will readily observe that 
there are nearly eighteen times as many 
Trine Immersionists in the world as 
there are Single. There are also nearly 
ten times as many Trine Actionists as 
there are single. 

Whatever evidence there is in all this 
is wholly on the side of the threefold 
immersion. Those who have been try- 
ing to make it appear that the number 
practicing trine immersion is too small 
to be of any weight in the scale of evi- 
dence can see by these figures how bad- 
ly mistaken they are.

A LESSON FROM THE BEES. 



By LANDON WEST. 



A swarm of bees reminds me of a 
congregation of live Christians all at 
work. All of them seem to know their 
place, their work, and are satisfied to do 
their part well. -They all see and know 
that there is work to do, and their wis- 
dom gives the field' and the work to the 
workers. And all not thus employed 
give space. 

While all seem to have an eye on the 
future, and the life of their families, yet 
there seems to be no wrangling or quar- 
reling, or even counseling at that time 
on work days, for the one object sought 
is to fill their hive with honey. 

In fact, all seem to be in love, in union 
and in peace. You will notice very little 
confusion or opposition among them. 
They seem to know what is right for 
themselves and to be strong believers in 
the doctrine that places all workers where 
they have equal rights of " life, liberty 
and the pursuit of happiness." And this 
one feature in bees' conduct should be 
admired and followed by all people, for 
bees have their troubles, their differ- 
ences, and dissatisfactions. Yet we 
never hear of anything like a lynching 
or a mobbing in order to settle their 
troubles. They seek not to spread them. 
There may be bitterness and jealousy 
among them, but if so it is all in private; 
and here many religious people could get 
lessons. 

I notice, too, that bees all seem to 
have due regard for their fellow-workers. 
They seem never to get in each other's 
way, or to hinder the efforts of their 
fellow-workers. This one trait is an 
ornament in any one of humanity, and 
should be sought for and acquired by 
all, for it would save time now being 
lost in merely talking and worrying 
about the faults and blunders of other 
people. 

The bees have little to disturb or ex- 
cite them. Hence their home is one of 



abiding peace, or love, of agreement, of 
labor, and of contentment. Each bee 
seems to mind his own business, and to 
see that his work is well done. From 
this we can all learn. 

Bees may have councils, in springtime 
especially, but these are all in private; 
they may be on wet days, or at night, 
but never on work days. So no time is 
lost merely for the sound of it. And 
this one spirit, if adopted by humanity, 
would prove a blessing in the whole 
world, in the churches, in the States and 
in the nations. 

Bees all seem to wish for, to seek for 
and to labor with the best material at 
hand, doing the best they can. Hence 
their work is always a good work, while 
the bee still bears the name of being an 
honest worker. He has done on his part 
all that circumstances would allow. So 
there is no need of turning off good 
worlcmen in his case. The bee as a 
worker is the best example that we can 
get. May all people take lessons. 

The bees have no strikes or difficulties 
as to higher wages, etc. Each one seems 
willing to do all he can and is satisfied 
with what he gets. 

Another thing I notice is, that bees do 
nothing for show or display, merely to 
please the eye. With them there is no 
such a thing as " lust of the eye," or of 
doing things for fashion's sake. They 
do it not thus; but all they can do is 
done to try to make the most good out 
of everything. Here some people leave 
their old path and duties, from now on, 
call them into a new way, for they see, 
as the bee, that it is better to get a little 
of the sweet than none. 

May all look around us and see our 
many blessings, and may all seek to 
make good use of the many opportuni- 
ties now at hand, that the one object 
of man's creation may be attained, and 
God's name may be glorified. Isa. 43:7. 
Yours in love.

ORIGIN OF HYMNS. 



BY GEO. B. HOLSINGER. 



I give the history of a few of the very 
popular hymns of the day. To know the 
history of a hymn has always added a 
new interest to it, and this ought also to 
help us in our singing of the hymn to 
make it more spiritual. 

The world-renowned hymn, " Just as I 
am, without one plea," was written in 
1836 by Charlotte Elliot. It is spoken of 
as " the divinest of heart utterances in 
song that modern times have bestowed 
upon us." It is one of those hymns that 
are suited to all ages, characters and con- 
ditions of life. 

"Just as I am" was an epitome of 
Miss Elliot's experience. She became 
deeply conscious of the evil of her own 
heart, and having not yet fully realized 
the fulness and freeness of the grace of 
God in the Lord Jesus Christ, she suf- 
fered much mental distress under the 
uncertainty whether it was possible that 
such a one as she felt herself could 
be saved. 

After groping her way through dark- 
ness for a year, Dr. Caesar Milan visited 
her father's house on the 9th of May, 
1822. He found her trying to work out 
her own salvation, and unwilling to trust 
entirely in Christ, thus being held back 
from the Savior by her own self-saving 
efforts. He said to her, " Dear Char- 
lotte, cut the cable, it will take too long 
to unloose it; cut it, it is a small loss. 
The wind blows, and the ocean is before 
you, the Spirit of God and eternity." 
And then bidding her to give " one look, 
silent but continuous at the cross of Je- 
sus," she was enabled at once freely to 
say, " Just as I am," etc. 

" From that time," says her sister, " for 
forty years his correspondence was just- 
ly esteemed the greatest blessing of her 
life. The anniversary of that day was al- 
ways kept as a festal day; and on that 



day, so long as Dr. Milan, lived, com- 
memorative letters passed from one to 
the other, as upon the birthday of her 
soul to true spiritual life and peace." ! 
"My Faith Looks Up to Thee." 

This hymn was written by Dr. Ray 
Palmer, in New York City, in December, 
1830. He was pursuing his education, 
and was, " between his college and the- 
ological studies," at the same time being 
employed as a teacher in a ladies' school. 
His health was very poor, and his world- 
ly prospects were clouded. He felt that 
the world could promise him nothing, 
and in an hour of seeming despondency, 
the young student turned to his only help 
and resource, to the promises of God. 
Comforted in spirit by him " to whom all 
things are possible," he tells his experi- 
ence and expresses his hope for the fu- 
ture in the lines of his hymn. The hymn 
at first seems not to have been intended 
for publication, for it was carried about 
in the author's pocket for a considerable 
time. 

Dr. Palmer says: "I gave form to 
what I felt, by writing with little effort 
the stanzas. I recollect I wrote them 
with tender emotion and ended the last 
line with tears." 

It remained for the musician, Dr. Low- 
ell Mason, to discover its true worth and 
to bring it to the eyes of the public. 
Mason and Hastings were compiling a 
new song book called " Spiritual Songs 
for Social Worship." It was a passing 
request by Dr. Mason that Dr. Palmer 
would contribute to this book, which 
brought out the hitherto unknown piece 
of poetry, in the recesses of the pocket- 
book. They were in Boston at the time 
and they stepped into a store together 
and a copy was made of the piece with- 
out any further comment. Then each 
proceeded on his way. On carefully re- 



32 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



reading the hymri at home, Dr. Mason 
was so much interested in it that he 
wrote at once the tune " Olivet " which 
has kept its company for all these wed- 
ded years with a sweet fidelity that no 
living man has ever dared to disturb. 

Two or three days later the authors 
met on the street and scarcely waiting to 
salute Dr. Palmer, Dr. Mason said in 
substance, " Dr. Palmer, you may live 
many years, and do many good things, 
but I believe you will be best known to 
posterity as the author of ' My Faith 
Looks Up to Thee,' " a prophecy liter- 
ally true years ago. It has been sung as 
far as the English language extends and 
has been translated into many foreign 
languages. 

"Blest Be the Tie That Binds." 

This sweet hymn was written by Rev. 
John Fawcett, D.D., in 1772. 

After he had been a few years in the 
ministry, his family increasing more rap- 
idly than his income, he thought it was 
his duty to settle as pastor of a Baptist 
church in London, to succeed the cele- 
brated Dr. Gill. He preached his fare- 
well sermon to his church in Yorkshire. 
Six or seven wagons were loaded with 
his furniture, books, etc., ready to be car- 
ried to his new residence. But his lov- 
ing people were not ready, for all this 
time the members of his poor church 
were almost broken-hearted, and fer- 
vently prayed that even now he might 
not leave them; and as the time for de- 
parture ^arrived, men, women and chil- 
dren clung around him and his family 
in perfect agony of soul. The last wag- 
on was being loaded, when the good man 
and his wife sat down on one of his 
packing cases to weep; and bitterly they 
wept. Looking into his tearful face, 
while tears likewise ran down her own 
cheeks, his devoted wife said, "John, I 
cannot bear this! I know not how to 
go!" "Nor I either," said the good 
man, " nor will we go. Unload the wag- 
ons and put everything in place where it 
was before." The people cried for joy. 
A letter was sent to the church in Lon- 



don to tell them that his coming to 
them was impossible; and the good man 
buckled on his armor for renewed labors, 
on a salary of less than three hundred 
dollars a year. "English hymns" say at 
less than two hundred. Then he took 
his pen and wrote the words of this beau- 
tiful hymn as expressive of the golden 
bond of union that knit pastor and peo- 
ple so closely and tenderly together. 

John Fawcett was born at Lidget 
Green, in Yorkshire, Jan. 17, 1739; died 
July 25, 1817. 

"Abide With Me," 

the last poetic utterance of Francis Lyte, 
was written as the shadows of the dark 
valley were closing his labors on earth. 
Though he was " scarcely able to 
crawl " he made one more attempt to 
preach and to administer the holy com- 
munion. " O brethren," said he, " I 
can speak feelingly, experimentally, on 
this point, and I ctand before you sea- 
sonably to-day, as alive from the dead, 
if I may hope to impress it upon you, 
and induce you to prepare for that sol- 
emn hour which must come to all, by a 
timely acquaintance with, appreciation 
of, and a dependence on the death of 
Christ." 

Many tearful eyes witnessed the distri- 
bution of the sacred elements, as, given 
out by one who was already standing 
with one foot in the grave. 

Having given with his dying breath a 
last adieu to his surrounding flock, he 
retired to his chamber fully aware of his 
near approach to the end of time. As 
the evening of the sad day gathered its 
darkness, he handed to a near and dear 
relative this immortal hymn, with music 
accompanying, which he had composed. 

The Master did abide with him the 
few more days he spent on earth. His 
end is described as that of " the happy 
Christian poet, singing while strength 
lasted," and while entering the dark val- 
ley, pointing upwards, with smiling coun- 
tenance, he whispered, " Peace, joy." 

He died on the way home, some say.

He " made hymns for his little ones, for 
his sturdy, hardy fishermen, and hymns 
for sufferers like himself. Rev. Henry F. 
Lyte, born 1816; died 1847. 

"Jesus, and Shall it Ever Be," 

found in nearly all the church hymn 
books, was written by Joseph Grigg 
when but ten years old. It had for its 
heading when first published: "Shame 
of Jesus conquered by love, by a child 
ten years old." 

It was first published in the " Gospel 
Magazine," and afterwards in a little 
pamphlet containing nineteen hymns, in 
which collection is also found the beau- 
tiful and much loved hymn, beginning, 
" Behold a stranger at the door." 

In early life he was a mechanic, and 
afterwards became a minister, and 
preached in Silver street, London, mar- 
rying a widow of considerable wealth. 
He was " the friend of the poor, the 
charm of the social circle, and an at- 
tractive and useful preacher." 



" Asleep in Jesus." 

This hymn originated in a visit paid 
by the authoress to a burying ground in 
the west of England. The suggestion 
was gotten from the words on a tomb- 
stone, " Sleeping in Jesus." This simple 
inscription is carved on a tombstone in 
the retired rural burying ground of Pen- 
nycross Chapel, Devonshire. Distant 
only a few miles from a bustling and 
crowded seaport town, reached through 
a succession of those lovely green lanes 
for which Devonshire is so remarkable, 
the quiet aspect of Pennycross comes 
soothingly over the mind. " Sleeping 
with Jesus " seems in keeping with all 
around. 

Here was no elaborate ornament, no 
unsightly decay. The trim gravel walk 
led to the house of prayer, itself boast- 
ing of no architectural embellishment to 
distinguish it, and a few trees were plant- 
ed irregularly to mark some favored 
spots. Written in 1832, by Margaret 
Mackay.

MINIST ERIA L LIST. 

Corrected up to and Including Nov. 7, 1905. 

For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brothet 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections made will appear in the Almanac list for 1907.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Do Vou Know 



that nine-tenths of the people who have testified to their restoration to 
health through the use of DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER state 
that before using this old herb-remedy they had tried doctors and various 
other remedies without avail, the BLOOD VITALIZER having been 
used as a last resort? 

Could a greater tribute be paid to any medicine? What does it sig- 
nify? It signifies simply this, that this plain household remedy cures 
when other medicines apparently fail. 

biis Physicians Gave Up 

Fremont, Pa., March 10. 
Dr. Peter Fahrney, Chicago, 111. 

Dear Sir: — For years, I suffered from indigestion, lack of appetite, insomnia and 
a skin eruption which showed itself especially on my limbs. On account of my 
age (68 years) the physicians said they could do nothing for me. Then I started 
to take your BLOOD VITALIZER regularly. That was about ten months ago. 
The diseased skin on my limbs commenced to peel off, my appetite returned and< 
scores of my friends are now surprised at my young appearance. My weight has 
increased from 120 to 150 lbs. At that time it would have been impossible for me 
to write with such a steady hand as I do now. My restoration to health I owe, next 
to God, to your BLOOD VITALIZER. Respectfully, 

(Rev.) Daniel Sanders. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer 

is one of the best blood medicines ever discovered. Health depends more 
or less on the condition of the vital fluid. If the blood is pure and vigorous, 
there is no room for disease. DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER 
is put up for a specific purpose — the cure of sick people. It had its birth 
over a century ago, in those days when people believed in rugged honesty, 
and has been handed down unchanged, as a heritage, from generation to 
generation. It occupies a place in the field of medicine distinctly its own. 
It may have its imitations but it has no substitute. Unlike other ready- 
prepared medicines, it is not to be had in drugstores, but is supplied direct 
to the people, through special agents appointed in every community. If 
you know of no agent in your neighborhood, write to the sole makers and 
proprietors,

MISSION BOARDS AND THEIR 
ORGANIZATION. 



In the following to make as complete a record 
as possible has been the end sought. After two at- 
tempts the results are as shown herewith. A 
number of Boards made no report whatever and 
hence the organization goes in as . it appeared in 
last year's Almanac. It has been thought use- 
ful to indicate the time when each one's term 
expires. It is hoped that next year all Boards 
will make a complete report.

DO NOT TAKE CHANCES. 

If you are afflicted with Piles, Fistula, or 
any other diseases of the rectum, investi- 
gate the Thornton & Minor System of 
Treatment, for these diseases are treated on 
a positive guarantee, which means that the 
patient does not pay one cent until he is 
satisfied a permanent cure has been effect- 
ed, and which permits him to return home 
to try and test before paying any money, 
to make sure that he is well. Read the

We know that Drs. Thornton & Minor, of 

Kansas City and St. , Louis, have success- 
fully treated a great many Dunkards

never had any complaint concerning this 
institution, which is undoubtedly the great- 
est in the United States in the treatment of 
rectal diseases. They send free a 352-page

ATTENTION, BRETHREN! 

When you read the advertisement of Drs. 
Thornton & Minor on page 3 of this Alma- 
nac, bear in mind that they have treated 
hundreds of Dunkard people throughout the 
United States for Piles, Fistula and dis- 
eases of the rectum, and have carried an 
advertisement for years in this Almanac, 
therefore, if we did not know that they 
positively guarantee a cure and do not ac- 
cept any money until the patient is well, 
we would not continue to endorse them.

THE GOSPEL MESSENGER 



A weekly religious journal, 16 large pages, is published in the interest of the 
Brethren church, and is the only church paper published by the authority of the Con- 
ference. Price, $1.50 per annum. 

It most earnestly pleads for a return to the apostolic order of worship and prac- 
tice. 

It holds that the Bible is a divinely-inspired book, and recognizes the New Testa- 
ment as the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the people of God. 

It also holds to the doctrine of the Trinity; teaches future rewards and punish- 
ment, and emphasizes the importance of a pure, holy and upright life before God and 
man. 

It maintains that only those who remain faithful until death have the promise of 
eternal life; 

That Faith, Repentance and Baptism are conditions of pardon, and hence for the 
remission of sins; 

That Trine Immersion or dipping the candidate three times face-forward is Chris- 
tian Baptism; 

That Feet-Washing, as taught in John 13, is a divine command to be observed in the 
church; 

That the Lord's Supper is a meal, and, in connection with the Communion, should 
be taken in the evening, or after the close of the day; 

That the Salutation of the Holy Kiss, or Kiss of Charity, is binding upon the fol- 
lowers of Christ; 

That War and Retaliation are contrary to the spirit and self-denying principles of 
the religion of Jesus Christ; 

That a Nonconformity to the world in daily walk, dress, customs and conversation 
is essential to true holiness and Christian piety. 

It maintains that in public worship, or religious exercises, Christians should ap- 
pear as directed in 1 Cor. 11: 4, 5. 

It also advocates the Scriptural duty of Anointing the sick with oil in the name 
of the Lord. 

In short, it is a vindicator of all that Christ and the Apostles have enjoined upon 
us, and aims, amid the conflicting theories and discords of modern Christendom, to 
point out ground that all must concede to be infallibly safe. 

The first page of the Messenger contains well-rounded-up news from most parts 
of the world. This page is highly prized by all the readers of the paper. 

Several pages are filled with good essays from the best writers in the Broth- 
erhood. Here nearly every phase of the Christian religion is considered. 

Three pages each week are filled with editorials, and a wide range of subjects is 
discussed from week to week. 

The Home and Family, Prayer Meeting, Christian Workers' and Missionary De- 
partments have each their special merit. 

The paper contains special news from every part of the Brotherhood, including re- 
ports from Denmark, Sweden, France, Switzerland and India. 

The General Missionary financial report is to be published every month. This will 
prove interesting to many. 

The contents of the paper are clean, well prepared and make pure, entertaining 
and most instructive reading. 

We shall be pleased to send sample copies to those wishing to know more about 
the paper. 

If you want a journal that contends earnestly for the good old Gospel ways, dc 
not fail to secure the Gospel Messenger.

small doses, or a physic if given in larger 
doses. 

Green discharges are always an indica- 
tion that baby's food is not properly digest- 
ed and such condition may result in diar-,
